Up until recently golf in Saigon was mainly played by local Vietnamese or foreign expatriates. The original 4 Ho Chi Minh City golf courses (Vietnam Golf & Country Club, Song Be Golf Resort, Dong Nai Golf Club, and Long Thanh Golf Club) either were only of average quality or limited tee times for visitors as demand was high and availability was low.
Nowadays, with the opening more courses such as Twin Doves Golf Club, Jeongsan Country Club, and Royal Island Golf Club more choices are available for Saigon golfers. More competition and choice has resulted in improved course maintenance standards and better availability as each of the Saigon golf courses all try to differentiate and stand out from the others.
This is welcome news for golf travelers as it is now easy to either consider Saigon as a golf holiday destination in and of itself or as part of a 2-centered golf holiday in combination with Danang. After all, Saigon the best nightlife in Vietnam and Danang the best golf in Vietnam and what golfer would want to miss either?
